Hi Ive just started orks from being a chaos kinda guy (KHORNE RULES :d) and I wanted to make an army good at cc and can tear things apart well, but get across the table quickly though. so I went for a speed freek army approach and tried it out. I got mutialated. I had 30 trukk boyz in trukks with rokkits on them with a good warboss 110 points (mega armour n booster with a cybork body), 15 skarboyz battlewagon with zzzap gun and tank busta x 10, i got annhialated because of the weak armour, the fact of very bad anti vehicle, bad saves, strength and that they die if I dont have spare vehicles. I dont know what to do and how to make a good list for speed freeks. I need some help! and I hope people can help me! I want to keep my Warboss by the way because hes just cool but everything else i dont know bout.
Please help me, im on my hands and knees!
this was what was in my army :
110 warboss w 15 skarrboyz and nob - battlewagon w zzzap gun and then a warrtrukk
3x10 trukkboyz with nob- rokkit trukks (wartrukks with rokkits on them)
7 tankbustas w rokkit trukk
And I got wasted

Alright, I normally play guard and im thinking of getting speed freeks for a second list. I wouldnt normally comment because i dont know what im talking about, but since you have no feedback, heres what i have to say:What exactly do you mean here? Are you taking a wartrukk for the warboss and not using it or something?battlewagon w zzzap gun and then a warrtrukk
You have a bit of a problem with inconsistant speed in your army. The troops all make it to the front quickly, but regular ork boyz dont have much staying power. Then after they do a bunch of fighting and dying, the battlewagon finally shows up with the big boyz.
I'm assuming by the way you organized it that the warboss will be attached to the skarboyz, so conisider replacing the skarboyz with nob bodyguards. The fact that they are beefier will compensate for the fact that there are fewer of them and now they can fit in a wartrukk and get to the fight just as fast as everyone else. With that change, you dont even need the points hefty battlewagon, and can get something else.
Find the points for a fighta bombaz raid, its dirt cheep and sounds like it would easily make its points back.
The fact that wartrukks are open topped must be killing you, look into the armoured top upgrade from the armageddon codex. Also remember that speed freeks must take grot riggers. Want to get to the fight even faster? Paint em red.
I wouldn't use a battlewagon at 1000 points. Just get more trukks. I'm not a fan of skarboyz either. Especially at a low point level, I would just squeeze in lots of trukks, and lots of wierd, smallish squads of t-boyz to confuse your opponent. Your warboss looks good, but I like to have mine on his own, or with a small nob retinue. Keep him cheap though, because his trukk will probably be the first to blow up.
I find a good way to increase your trukks' survivability is to throw in a few scorcha/rokkit/bigshoota buggies, have em speed up with your trukks, and pull out sideways in front of the trukks. This makes a line of vehicles your opponent has to punch a hole through before he can target the trukks. (I'm thinking about modifying my buggies so they're a tiny bit longer, too... )
EDIT: Oh yeah and the fighta bommaz raid is awesome, but it's more valuable at higher points levels when your opponent has more units. Still might be worth considering at 1000 points.
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
Witch Hunters: 1000 pts
